This report on technology in education has been prepared, primarily for TVOntario staff, to highlight new and growing educational applications and to summarize recent evaluations of earlier application efforts. The descriptions of trends and developments are classified by media format. Representative applications of the media include: (1) television (use of telecourses and educational programming for adults, introduction of media literacy courses, and an increasing number of television game shows for children); (2) satellite delivery (more use of satellite transmission to deliver professional and continuing education programs and academic resources); (3) teleconferencing (as a communications medium for business, as a delivery medium for medical consultation and training, and as a forum for student exchange); (4) computers (computer-based learning environments, database access, and conferencing capabilities); (5) videodisk and interactive video (for training resource provision and for teaching reading); and (6) videotex (for banking, shopping, and financial planning services).
